Excited states

Input file for real time propagation of formaldehyde.

This file will excite the formaldehyde using an impulse (delta kick) then propagate the system in time.

The file ch2o_pbe_rtp-output-moments.dat should contain the system dipole moment at each time step.

By extracting the z component of this moment and taking a discrete fourier transform of it (xmgrace maybe) you should be able to obtain the optical absorption spectrum of formaldehyde at PBE level.

Here is an input that calculates the first five excited states of formaldehyde using TDDFPT instead. The energies should be the same as for RTP.

Note that this needs a very up to date CP2K executable to work version > r17219
